Another Opus Gluei Challenge Card!

Hey there Stampers! How are you?

Today's card uses a fun technique called Faux Metal you- can find the tutorial HERE.
I started out with a Whisper White Card stock base (#100730) and added a panel of Basic Gray card stock (#108692)stamped with the nuts and bolts image in Versamark Ink (#102283) from the Lots of Bots stamp set (#115293) and a panel of Old Olive DSP (#112160). I stamped the robot and the nuts and bolts stamps following the Faux Metal technique. I matted the robot on Basic Black card stock (#102851)and added Silver Brads (#104336) using my 1/16" Handheld Punch (#101227). I punched the Faux Metal nuts and bolts with my 1/2" Circle Punch (#104390) and matted it on Basic Black punched with the 3/4" Circle Punch (#107217).

The result is super neat even if my balloon didn't quite turn out ;)

Have a super day!
